  • C.J. Stroud Impressing Coaches Early On

    Headshot for C.J. Stroud

    Houston Texans head coach DeMeco Ryans said that rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud has "done an excellent job" early on during organized team activities. It's good to see Stroud making a strong impression early on, but the Texans won't determine their starting signal-caller until training camp or after. Davis Mills saw the first repetitions at Tuesday's practice and is still technically fighting for the starting job in Week 1 of the regular season. The Texans also have veteran journeyman Case Keenum around. Stroud, the second overall pick in the draft, may not be the starter out of the gate in his rookie season, but he's fully expected to start the majority of Houston's games this year. The 21-year-old has plenty of long-term upside, but his fantasy value will most likely be limited in Year 1.

  • C.J. Stroud Running Second-Team Offense At OTAs

    Headshot for C.J. Stroud

    Houston Texans rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud is starting off with the second-team offense as the team begins OTAs. Third-year quarterback Davis Mills is getting all of the first-team reps thus far, but it's only a matter of time before Stroud gets the chance to work with the first-team offense after being selected No. 2 overall in the 2023 NFL Draft. There's no guarantee he'll start in Week 1, but it's almost a foregone conclusion he'll start early in his NFL career. Stroud will have limited fantasy upside in his rookie year with a pass-catching group of Nico Collins, Robert Woods, John Metchie, Tank Dell, and Dalton Schultz. That said, the team is early in the rebuilding process, so Stroud has plenty of time to develop.

    Offensive guard Shaq Mason has agreed to a three-year contract extension with the Texans. The deal is worth $36 million, with $22 million guaranteed. The 29-year-old landed in Houston from the Buccaneers in March, bolstering the team's offensive line for the 2023-24 campaign. Mason has plenty of experience under his belt, starting 115 games during his career. He is also a two-time Super Bowl champion, so his presence is good news for rookie signal-caller C.J. Stroud.

  • C.J. Stroud Asked Texans To Take Nathaniel Dell

    Houston Texans rookie wide receiver Nathaniel Dell said that quarterback C.J. Stroud told the Texans front office after he was drafted with the second overall pick last Thursday night that he wanted the team to select Dell later in the draft. Stroud and Dell developed a relationship at the NFL scouting combine and will now be working together in their first NFL season. Dell is a bit undersized, but he was productive with 29 touchdowns at the University of Houston in his final two seasons, and he has a clear path to become the team's slot receiver in his first year at the next level. The 23-year-old could be worth a late-round flier in deeper fantasy leagues this fall, although both he and Stroud will certainly see their fair share of ups and downs in their rookie season.
